Publisher's Summary

Tietam Brown tells the story and speaks in the voice of Antietam (Andy) Brown, named for the great-great-great- grandfather who died on that Civil War battlefield. Andy at seventeen is himself the veteran of a violent boyhood, having been locked up in the Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center for killing a teenager who attempted to rape him.

Now, after seven years, he is out, free, at a crossroads, trying to make a fresh start, to fit into the life of Conestoga High School in the small upstate New York town to which he has been brought by his father – absent from his life since he was a month old. The man is certainly charismatic. He is also crude, apparently addicted to bodybuilding and beer swilling. He has no visible job, no known past.

Associated by the town with his father's coarseness, hectored by the boorish football coach and the coach's pack of steroid-pumping teens, feeling himself losing ground, Andy is stunned to discover that the most popular girl in town is attracted to him. Terri, the homecoming queen, the school beauty, every boy's dream girl, a born-again Christian, a really nice girl. Andy can't believe it. He is immediately head over heels in love – first love – and determined to protect Terri from everything bad on earth. Worried that his father, even he himself, might contaminate her, and determined for her sake to discover what his father is, Andy begins to delve into the locked rooms and dangerous currents of the elder Tietam Brown's past and present.

What happens is told in an audiobook that is appealingly direct, moving, and altogether pleasurable in its superb storytelling and celebration of the human spirit.

    "Chair Shot"

    Mick Foley may make his living getting bonked in the head with steel chairs, but the hard core legend has a great read in Tietam Brown. The narration is spot on, hopefully Mick will grace us with another.
